Brother 6800 scanning

I'm using my scanner for the first time - when I put a document in to be scanned, I press "scan to" button and then select "to email" -then I see LCD area say "connecting to PC" and then it returns to the "Auto" screen. I'm on a mac and bought the printer from my old office so I don't have instructions.

How do I get scanner and mac to read my request to scan?

Hi there, have you downloaded the latest scanner software from Brother and then do the scan from within the software interface. When you press the scan button, do you get the option to scan to and then the format that you want the document scanned. Here is a link to the scanner software from Brother.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

How to use the scan ( Brother mfc 420cn ). Thanks!


With printer turned ON, and connected either through a USB cabe or ethernet, open the Control Center CC3. Click the SCAN button on the CC3 widow to select SCAN to Image, Scan to OCR, scan to E-mail, or scan to file. If you have not configured these options yourself, you will find the scanned documents in the user's My Pictures/ CC3/SCAN folder.So with CC3 open, the document on the glass falt bed or in the ADF, select the type of scan and press the corresponding button. A small progress window opens, etc..

I need to scan documents in jpg format. I notice there is an option to choose tif/jpg but I don't seem to be able to choose the jpg option it just keeps choosing tif. How can I scan in...


Everyone above has cut and pasted from the Ricoh manual, which as any tech will tell you is worthless. There is some other setting that must be set to force the "TIFF/JPG" to toggle - hence why no one has figured it out.

I am trying to figure out how to use my Brother MFC-8440 scanner. I would like to use it to scan documents to email out. When I go to Brother.com and look at the direction book, it doesn't have directions...


It is part of the Network User's Guide (section 10) and the Software User's Guide (section 3 for a PC using Windows, Section 8 for network scanning), not the User's Guide. The directions below are for XP and Win2K primarily. Slight changes may exist with other OS versions. (Full software is not available for Win7 so the buttons on the unit will not work. You will need to launch scans from the computer only. You can use Windows Paint or Fax and Scan without needing third party software. Then attach the file to an email either in the email software or by right clicking on the file and choosing Send to Mail Recipient.)

For either use, put the document face down on the glass or face up in the ADF.

If you use a directly connected computer, you need to set the destination for the Scan to E-mail in the Control Center (section 4-4 in the Software User's Guide). Open this program and make sure the correct machine is in the drop-down menu. This program needs to be running to hear the buttons being pressed. Click on E-mail to set which program will get the scanned document as an attachment for your e-mail. You can also set the resolution and type of attachment. If you do not want to use available file formats, you will need to scan in PaperPort (or other software) and then use that to attach the file to the e-mail. Then click Scan to launch the scan from the unit. Hit Set when ready to send.

If you have the unit set up on the network, then you can enter the LAN setup in the Front Panel (or a browser). Hit Menu 6 (and then the appropriate number for the next feature), such as TCP/IP, DHCP or Static IP (these are under 1), SMTP, POP3, Mail Address (Menu 6 2). Setup the Scan to email with Menu 6 7 1 for color and Menu 6 7 2 for black and white.

This automatically sends the item to the email server or PDF as either a PDF or JPEG. Then you need register the PC that will get the file to the unit, if you use scan to email (PC). (Your version of Windows will matter for exactly where the information is: Control Panel > Scanners and Cameras or Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Scanners and Cameras.) Right click on the icon for the unit and select Properties to see the Network Properties box. Go through all of this set up including the Scan To Button. Then the Control Center will launch the e-mail program when it "hears" you press Scan, select Scan to Email, press Set, then choose PC and press Set again. (or select the destination PC which has e-mail access and press Set again). Scanning will start.

If you have set the POP3 and SMTP servers and the unit can directly access them, then you can scan to e-mail and enter the recipient address. Press Scan, select Scan to Email, press Set, choose Email Server and Press Set again. Adjust the scan quality as desired pressing Set at each step. Once you go through all of the layers, the LCD screen will prompt you for the recipient's email address. Then press Start.

I hope this helps.

I can't scan


When scanning documents on my MFC 7420, this is what I do. Place document on th scanner bed and don't press any buttons, leave it whatever mode it is in. Go to the computer and click on start> program files> scansoft paperport> open paperport se. When paperport is open click on the scan icon in the upper left corner. A dialog box on the left hand side will ask what you want to scan a picture or document. Select accordingly and press the scan icon.
A new window will pop up and ask what you want to scan and the size. You can either select pre scan or scan. The computer then will send a scan request to the scanner. When it is done scanning close the second window that popped up and the document that you just scanned will be there with a red box around it. Click on the document and it will open, then you can edit and save as needed.
Happy scanning

What are the instructions to scan using Brother DCP 1000? I laid the docment face down and pressed Scan To and nothing happens but showing another selection in the glass window.


To Scan on Brother DCP 1000 you need to click on the "Paperport" Icon on the desktop. Then Click on "Twain." Lay your document to be scanned face down on the scanner glass. Press the "Scan To" button on the Brother DCP 1000 printer. On the "Twain" window click on "Start." Note: When I clicked on "Start" it initially scanned blanks. I clicked on "PreScan" and saw an image. Then I again clicked on "Scan" and it worked. I named each document I scanned and saved them in a folder for later use.
